Ondeo Nalco and Flexible Solutions Sign Letter of Intent For Manufacture of Water$avr

Flexible Solutions announced that Ondeo Nalco, a subsidiary of SUEZ, has signed a Letter of Intent to provide global manufacturing capacity for Flexible Solutions’ Water$avr product.

Water$avr is an evaporative control powder that is self-spreading over the surface of reservoirs, canals and rivers.  By retaining available water, WaterSavr provides more water at an applied cost as low as $.04 (.05 Euro) per cubic meter.

Patrick Grant, President of the Flexible Solutions’ Water$avr Division, states, “In partnering with Ondeo Nalco on this project, we have found a company that can meet the quality manufacturing standards required for a NSF product.  Additionally, they have access to regional capacities in various areas of the world, and total annual capability to manufacture up to 400 million pounds of Water$avr.”

It is the intention of both companies to move quickly from the Letter of Intent toward a full manufacturing contract.

“Ondeo Nalco is a global leader in finding solutions in the international water market. Because Water$avr provides a unique solution to managing evaporation loss, we anticipate that both companies will be able to leverage their strengths in creating a successful partnership” said Dan Harker, Vice President of Supply Chain and e-Commerce for Ondeo Nalco.

The companies have also initiated licensing negotiations for Water$avr.
